Sorry.
There's this feature... 'new thread'.

OP's done the right thing, he's found an alternative & apparently plans on taking the painter to Civil court. If the shop had been a member of BBB, then contactnig them would have been a good move too. They're not, so it's kind of a moot point.

bad body shop

they cant tell you one price then make you pay another and they have to guarantee theyre work if your not satisfied then they should make you satisfied but the original price you should have got in writing but take a cop to the shop and demand you parts they cant keep them from you if you at least pay the 75 like first arranged

As a painter, I can say you're pretty ignorant in what you just said. Paint is paint, no matter what it goes on. But it is nearly impossible to operate on just cycle customers alone.

Dont bother with them, hey are a scam worse than your pant guy.
the bbb is there for a database, if I want construction work on the house, you look and see if there are any complaints on the company you are thinking about using. basically, its a research tool.

Easy now big boy......."Paint is paint, no matter what it goes on" Thanks for helping me make my pointDo you use the same Materials/procedures for a bumper cover as a fender? Aluminum? Fiberglass, composites etc??? Not trying to get in a " match" here, just trying to make a "soft point".It helps to be somewhat familiar with the pieces your painting IE Paint around the edges,paint wrapping were the underneath/inside is visible, wear areas, fuel exposed areas etc.....Right???Specialty shops survive for a reason, there's a need!.I've been painting M/C's only for almost 10years(not starving) and worked in BS's since 78' with a 7 year break as a Tech rep for Sikken's, I'm not talking out of my .............

I'm not saying it's impossible. But you discredit all painters who aren't specialty painters. A skilled painter can be very capable and aware of the materials/techniques required to paint whatever comes into the shop. Although a customer may take a certain risk in doing taking such items to a generic body shop which survives on auto body damages, with a little research done I'm sure they could find a shop with able and knowledgable workers.

I've painted several motorcycles and will probably paint many in the future and will stand behind my work. So I would appreciate you not telling people that their motos have to go to a specialty shop less they take the risk of getting paint in their tank and it all falling offf later.
